But things are happening too fast. Or too slow, depending on your point of view. I love Lake County geographically, and I love my Lake County friends, and I love my Lake County communities, but I am not especially enamored of Lake County Government right at this time. My entire life has been taken over by the County’s brilliant plan NOT to renew the lease on the building that houses the East Lake County Library. The waters get muddied because the Chamber is the landlord…we own the Library building and we depend on revenue from the lease to operate. So if we can’t come to some sort of deal, wow…my work life will change drastically. AND Sorrento will get the short end of the stick again.
So the County Commission meets tomorrow (to make a very long story sort of a little shorter)in a workshop session, and NO PUBLIC INPUT will be accepted until after the meeting. I wrote what I think was a pretty good letter. There have been many others. We have petitions. But I’m afraid it’s a done deal. It has nothing to do with finances, no matter what the County says, because financially it makes no sense to close this particular library. And in the larger scheme of things, the County shouldn’t be closing libraries.
But I’m going to write all that later. So goodnight.
